Jets' Tebow on the bench against the Bills in Orchard Park

John Elway always made good choices as a quarterback and he’s made even better ones as an executive.  When Elway had to the chance to upgrade his quarterback situation by signing Peyton Manning, he didn’t think twice about it.

With that process he had to jettison Tim Tebow to the New York Jets. Elway has no regrets about that trade, and while speaking to WFAN’s Boomer & Carton yesterday, Elway said Tebow would probably “need the right situation to play in the league again.”

“I think Tim Tebow has a lot of fans. You know, and I had to take care of the Denver Broncos,” Elway said in his sit-down with Esiason and Craig Carton. “And Peyton Manning was the best thing for the Denver Broncos.”

“He’s a good kid and he works his tail off,” Elway said.

Tebow thought New York “was the best opportunity for him.”

I’m not sure there’s a situation conducive enough in the league or a coach willing to put his job on the line for   Tim Tebow at this point.

I will say again, if he would just switch positions he could be an all pro at tight end.
